Lie Sang Bong’s New York Fashion Week Debut
After showing at Paris Fashion Week for 12 years, my favorite Korean fashion designer, Lie Sang Bong, debuted his new collection at New York Fashion Week last Wednesday at Lincoln Center. I was invited to attend, and as you can imagine, I was super excited.
To see a preview of his shows in the past, see my posts on his show in Paris last October, and presentations with other Korean fashion designers with Concept Korea (once in September 2012 and again in February 2013).
Once I found my way to the Pavilion, the darkened, theatre-like space where his show was being held, I headed to my assigned seat.
The seats were rows of benches and along a few rows, bags of goodies with an illustration of Lie Sang Bong.
The place was buzzing with excitement as people began to fill the seats.
The photographers all piled up, ready for the show to start.
And off we go! The room darkened, the music came on, and with a flash of light, the first look went down the runway. So many gorgeous and lush looks!
Love this shot with the shadows of the people taking pics. To see all the looks that came down the runway, check out the video of the show. Love this coat, this dress, and this vest! His collection showed bold colors and geometric shapes mixed with neutrals and clean silhouettes.
I’ve learned that there is a flagship store to open in New York this fall! Cannot wait!
